Everything about this inn is fantastic!

5 on May 08, 2018

This is a very well appointed inn - clean, centrally located and operated by very hospitable hosts, who are sharing and knowledgeable about everything we needed to know about the inn and Provincetown. Because of the inn’s location we were able to walk everywhere - walkabouts, restaurants, movie theater, shops, galleries, lounges/bars, beach and general sightseeing. Our hosts provided a delicious breakfast each morning in a very relaxing atmosphere. We had a very enjoyable stay at this inn and highly recommend it.


A weekend at The Benchmark Inn

4.8 on May 03, 2018

I recently returned from a nice off-season stay at the Benchmark. Everything was perfect: the bright, clean room, proximity to everything, the lovely dining room, and especially the charming hosts Daniel and Dan.


Amazing place!

The Benchmark Inn is a fantastic place to stay. The room we stayed in was beautiful, with many lovely little touches, as were all the public areas.The only downside was that the continental breakfast was okay but not great. That won't stop us from going back, though; it really is a gem.


Beautiful Inn!

We just returned from an off-season stay. The room was newly updated and beautiful. Billy-Rae, our host was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the Benchmark Inn.


Wonderful!

The Benchmark Inn is sublime, this was our second visit. The rooms are beautifully decorated--clean--light and airy. But it is the human factor I love. Billy Ray made our stay a comfortable and fun one. He made me feel as though I knew him and was reunited with a long lost friend. This is a remarkable quality for a person to have. Billy Ray shines. I plan to continue my annual visits. Thank you!


Warm & inviting B&B in Provincetown

4.4 on January 06, 2018

A beautiful, restored old Provincetown home has been made into a comfortable inn less than a block off of Commercial Street, the town's main thoroughfare. Great breakfast that included homemade savory pastries and fantastic coffee. Our host was friendly, helpful and engaging. Rooms on Second floor have views of the harbor and the town.


New Year 2018 Stay

Our stay at the Inn was perfectly delightful. The room was beautiful, the location was great and our host Billy-Ray took very good care of us.


Quiet, cozy relaxing getaway with a great view

5 on December 11, 2017

We stayed in the Penthouse for the weekend of the lighting of the lobster pot tree. This location was perfect, a short walk to the center of downtown, but far enough for a quiet night's sleep. The staff was extremely accomodating and welcoming. This will be our go-to spot for upcoming stays in PTown


Excellent Off-Season Hideaway

5 on December 05, 2017

Excellent staff; quiet and relaxing; comfortable bed; convenient location for Provincetown shopping and restaurants; felt safe and secure; 2nd floor south facing room (#2) had its own little deck with views of Provincetown Harbor and historic town skyline. 3rd time stay.


Aussergewöhnliches B&B mit herausragender Schweizer Qualität

5 on November 28, 2017

Das sehr gut gelegene Benchmark Inn (ruhige, erhöhte Lage nur wenige Schritte vom Zentrum) liess keine Wünsche offen und übertraf unsere Erwartungen. Das Zimmer war äusserst sauber, gemütlich und komfortabel, das gebotene Frühstück verdiente eine Ode: Vielfältige, frische lokale und internationale Qualitätsprodukte, selbst gebackene Köstlichkeiten, exzellenter Kaffee ("Jura"-Kaffeemaschine)! Die Herzlichkeit sowie die kompetenten Ausflugtips und Restaurantempfehlungen der beiden Betreiber rundeten unseren unvergesslichen Aufenthalt in Ptown perfekt ab. Unbedingt empfehlenswert - wir werden bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt sicher wieder das Benchmark Inn wählen!
